But of course!

Social Justice. Eradicating human trafficking. Promoting marine conservation. Defying gravity: scuba, caving, paddling, trapeze... moving in three dimensions.

What avra c. is saying about this Meetup Group

CDI seems broadly engaged across the spectrum of social justice issues and I look forward to being a part of their efforts. I have run across CDI at protest demonstrations, fundraisers, panel discussions, movies and other events. They are a great group of smart and dedicated humanitarians committed to improving life for those on the lowest rungs of the social ladder. Their approach is well reasoned, and their success measurable and sustainable.
